Part of a rectangle, now 85 by 105 mm, cut from sheet
lead c. 1.5 mm thick, found in
1978 at the temple of Mercury on West Hill. Part survives of three cut edges.
Although crumpled, it was probably not folded deliberately; there is a neat
hole in the inscribed portion (above ‘E’), as if it were once nailed flat to
something. Inscribed in capitals.
